Monster Mini-Stock Heats Set World Short Track Championship Field

Fourty-nine COMP Cams Monster Mini-Stocks took the field at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Friday to set the first nine rows of Saturday’s Drydene World Short Track Championship Feature.

In the first Heat, Tack Brown [4B] took the lead in Turn 1 on lap one from pole-sitter Spark Parris [43] and led to the finish, fending off several challenges from Parris who would go on to finish second. Pete Brew [12B] held his position to fill the final transfer spot and move on to tomorrow night’s Feature.

Matt Gilbert [117] snuck by pole-sitter Austin Brown [O4] on lap one of the second Heat, but Brown was able to regain the lead on lap 3. The two battled on the final lap, but Brown held off the attack to win Heat Race 2. Finishing third, in the final transfer spot, Casey Towell [97] advanced to start in Saturday night’s feature.

Pole sitter Nick Walker [O] led flag to flag to win Heat Race 3. On lap two Travis Mosely [19] moved into third place for the transfer, but a parts failure on the following lap sent him to the pits. With one to go Carl Currin was able to move into the third and final transfer spot. Logan Ritchey [10] finished second.

Nick Broome [O7] won Heat 4 with Brandon Clements [7c] finishing second. The third and final transfer spot was swapped back and forth with Roger Nance [33] holding onto it for the final two laps.

Last year’s Feature winner Brayden Pruitt [13] started on the pole in Heat 5 and seemed to pick up right where she left off. Daniel Coffey [99] finished second, and after a three-car battle Travis Sharpe [T2] was able to pick up the third and final transfer spot. 

Lap one of Heat 6 was quickly put under yellow for debris on the track. On the restart several cars were involved in an incident that sent them spinning into the infield.  When the race got underway Phillip Wilson [O4W] was able to lead the pack and win, with Jason Dickerson [12] finishing second. The third and final transfer spot went to Rod Tucker [8T].
